Question about KitchenAid K5SS Heavy Duty Commercial Stand Mixer
After adjust the screw the beater still continues to hit the bowl. The bowl is clamped down securely what else can I do? It is like the head has moved down.
Check the four large screws at the back of the motor housing. They screw up thru the pedestal into the gear/motor housing. If they are loose that can allow the motor to tilt forwards. Check also the ones under the pedestal base, I have never seen those ones loose though and they would not cause your problem.

You are going to DESTROY YOUR MIXER by kneading dough with the flat beater. Read the directions. They spell it out in big letters. Only use the dough hook for dough; only use speed 2.
If the mixer generated enough torque to knead dough with the flat beater (it doesn't), it would tear up and overwork the dough. As it is, you're lucky you didn't strip a gear.

Try lowering the bowl by removing the pad below the base of the bowl.

The adjustment screw did work for me but I adjusted using the dough mixer instead of Flat Head mixer as specified (only-realized after reading the manual ;o).
After readjusting using the correct flat head, everything is happy again.
- manual, I don't need a stinking manual !!! ;o)

Adjusting the screw didn't work for me the first time I tried it. I was afraid of loosening the screw too much, and so I didn't turn it far enough. Turning the screw counter-clockwise until it stuck out several millimeters finally worked.

I had a similar problem with mine - the problem turned out to be that I hadn't clicked the bowl into place corectly. If you find the bowl is tilting forward slightly then you probably need to push it into the clip at the back.
